Window Cleaning

How Often Should Naples-Area Businesses Clean Their Windows

The Naples, Florida area is known for its mild climate, white sand beaches, and natural beauty —  attributes enhanced by a business community that strives to keep commercial areas pristine and inviting for residents and visitors alike. With their prominence and transparency business facility windows tend to display the first signs of dirt, discoloration, or other contamination before other surfaces. Pollen, dust, and other contaminants are easy to see on glass and other transparent surfaces and even raindrops tend to lead to window spotting.

This begs the question for business owners of how often a business needs to clean its windows. While monthly window cleaning frequency represents a good minimum rule of thumb, the cleaning frequency is not necessarily clear cut and depends upon numerous factors. 

Do You Serve Customers at Your Place of Business?

The first consideration with your window cleaning frequency should address your customer base. If you regularly provide services to the public at your business, then you want the premises to be as clean as possible. Customers appreciate cleanliness and they’ll definitely notice dirty or begrimed windows. And, in this age of COVID-19, overall cleanliness is of paramount importance. If your business windows reflect dirt, grime, indeterminate spatters, or other contamination, customers might wonder what else in the business is being left uncleaned. Such thoughts could make customers decide to take their business elsewhere.

Type of Business and Location Need to be Considered

Some businesses simply generate the need for more window cleaning. The amount of foot traffic through business premises may dictate the need for more frequent window cleaning, especially around entrance areas. In fact, some businesses generate so much foot traffic that their entranceway windows need daily cleaning. Additionally, some businesses tend to generate airborne particles that adhere to interior windows. For example, interior restaurant windows typically need much more frequent cleaning due to airborne grease and other cooking contaminants.

The location of your business will also play a role in your window cleaning decisions. The windows of a business located on a busy thoroughfare tend to get dirty much quicker than those located on a quiet lane. Businesses fronting or near our beautiful Gulf Coast waters may need more frequent cleaning due to salt air from the sea breeze. And some types of landscaping around or near the business may create more dust and dirt than other types.     

Your Employees Deserve Natural Light and a Clear View, Too

Even if your business does not serve a robust customer base on-site, when determining commercial window cleaning frequency, you should also take note of the well-being of your employees. Natural light is a proven mood enhancer, and the clear view of it you provide your employees with clean windows will undoubtedly help spur productivity.

Reasonably Priced & Very Detailed

We have a three unit, two story condo building that needed an exterior painting job we awarded to FCI Painting. Their proposal was reasonably priced and very detailed. Richard Foden’s came to estimate the job and took the time to explain the process, answer questions and provide recommendations (that help us in our process). We received four proposals and FCI’s stood out making our decision straight forward. FCI crew was professional and the foreman ‘Eduardo’ exceptional. On a daily basis’s he communicated what to expect, what they would be achieving and the crews next steps. Crew was courteous and cleaned up the grounds every evening. We highly recommend FCI Painting company. Thanks

Incredible Service

I honestly cannot recommend this company enough. I was attempting to find painters in Naples while I was still in Canada. Richard and his team were so helpful in the process, going above and beyond what I could have ever imagined. They were thorough, professional, and one of the best prices I found in the area. Incredible service.

Can’t Recommend FCI Painting enough

I can’t recommend FCI Painting enough! Owner Richard Foden runs one of the finest painting companies I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. When my business moved into our new office, we started researching painters in Naples, FL and FCI came highly recommended. The commercial painters that Richard works with are prompt, thorough and professional. After working with them in a business setting, I’ll be certain to give Richard a call next time I’m in need of house painters as well.

Competitive & Fair

FCI Painting did an outstanding job for us and we are more than pleased with the results. We found the pricing to be competitive and fair. Our painter, Chris, was an expert craftsman, patched several areas of drywall that needed attention and helped us work through a problem we had with one of the colors we chose. We would definitely recommend FCI painting for anyone looking for a quality job at a fair price.
